DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS AND THE FUTURE OF WORK
How can innovations save labor, resources and enhance decision making for accelerated social impact?
How can standards of living be significantly and fundamentally enhanced in an unequal and fast-changing world?
Getting international development right is essential for the living standards of billions.
Far too often, inadequate institutions and processes place an unacceptable ceiling on what is possible.
Current experimentation and other rigorous analyses are still unnecessarily slow and also suffer from uncoordinated policy making.
Innovations for rapid experimentation and enhancing institutions at scale must be integrated with a social and historical understanding for transparency, ethics and social impact.

I research and build economic and technological systems inspired by political economy, economic history and related fields. My goal is to provide efficient decision solutions for the private sector, governments, and international institutions throughout (what I call) the economic development stack for faster and better development.Kweku Opoku-Agyemang, Ph.D.
